We relish the times we get to align ourselves and work with Clients that operate at the pinnacle of their fields and expertise primarily because it provides huge learning opportunities for our Team here in SONICA. So when we were given the opportunity to work with APC, a Company that are an absolute powerhouse for lightning-fast development of medicines, we wholeheartedly jumped at it. Delivering their workspace and “Medicine Accelerator” was a great honour for us – this new facility will deliver great benefits to science for many years to come. Thank you APC for the learnings and the experience !
